As long as they keep it disabled in pvp games, I'm fine. I don't want to have to re-learn how to play online shooters just to stay competitive. That said, if it means games that require mouse/keyboard have a chance of coming to Xbox (like RTSs) and require this, then I'm all for it.
This is a signature. It has words in it.

Please EA, add this to The Sims 4. It would benefit so much from adding mouse and keyboard.

Tell that to Sea of Thieves and Rocket League. Cross platform games are already unbalanced because of it, so it doesn't really matter. Non cross platform games on the other hand.

inb4 Elite keyboard and mouse

Jokes aside, I'm really glad to see this - there is a good handful of games that I can think of right off the cuff that will really benefit from this

HARD PASS. This shit is so god damn unnecessary on console. Gamers always find ways to exploit it and... this blows.

I doubt competitive PvP will allow this on console. You're at a great disadvantage when using a controller. Won't be surprised if some find a way to exploit this though

I'm 100% for this personally. Mouse and keyboard will always be better to me.

They said it’s up to the developers whether to allow it in PVP. So it will come. Gears 4 allows it I think already. Coalition definitely said there was statistically no difference in performance/winrate during their public testing.

Great! The brother uses Microsoft edge on a regular basis on his One so I guess its time to pick up a wireless mouse and keyboard for him.

In Rocket League, console players have a great,GREAT advantage against computer players. Analog sticks are more precise and have more directions.

Looking forward to this but since it's enabled by developers that will mean it will never be implemented. Developers don't even turn on the achievement tracker or time played counter anymore.

This would be great for so many games, but give a huge advantage over anyone using a controller in PvP games. I already use a keyboard for Elite Dangerous when I'm typing in system names so it will be cool to see the support go further.

If devs allow this, and don't keep KB+M users separate from controller users in Gears 5, or hell, ANY PVP mode in any game, I will absolutely not buy those games just off GP. Fuck. That. Keep those cheating PCtards as far away from me as possible. Single player games, strategy stuff, sure, who cares. But I want controller vs controller ONLY lobbies in MP. The moment they try to force me to play with KB+M guys, piss off, I'm gone. I bought a console to get away from them; MS seems hellbent on pushing them into my gaming experience. Not cool.

I can guarantee they won't do this, but it would be cool if they made a smaller more specialized keyboard for the Xbox. You don't really need all 90 keys for any game. They should make one with fewer keys and also label them accordingly. Perhaps even with LED keys that will change their label according to what game you're playing.... just dreaming out loud. dance

I don't see the point.

If it was some ten years ago I believe Microsoft would make and sell their own keyboard and mouse.

But since the Xbox One, or a bit earlier with the Xbox 360 with those Sandisk Memory Units, Microsoft is just licensing accessories.
They sell keyboards and mice worldwide. I really hope they make their own.

Rocket League unbalanced? Everybody uses controllers...
